CATFISH AND CLIQUES

I had a thought, lets see what you guys think about it. Does Alice really seem to fit in with any of the girls at school, anywhere in the book? If so why, if not why not? We all remember school cliques. Do you think the girls in these cliques, are the catfish of the next generation? And WHAT is with the girl with the fairy wings she wears???? LOL, did i miss something, or does she just wear them all the time??

I think there must be a group Alice could fit in to. She's always been her sister's shadow, and she lacks confidence to try to socialize. I think she just sits backs and observes and if she leaves others alone, they will leave her alone. I went to a big high school, and there was always a group for one to "go" to. When she got her new clothes and new hairdo, the cheerleaders sought her out. Interesting since school was already well into the year, that they would decide to seek her out.

Catfishes, yes ... a new generation. The "popular group" (I hate that term), the cheerleaders would be.

The girl with the fairy wings ... since she can't fit in, she'll draw attention to herself to just be around. Everyone knows of her, right? :smileywink:

She doesn't always wear the fairy wings ... there's another prop she wears. I can't remember what it is, tho. Am I correct? :smileysurprised:

Seems to me she was wearing them at Sheila's party but then again she was wearing them at school in the lunchroom while the girls were talking. So if there was a reason for that, thats what i wasnt catching. It seemed to me, she just liked to wear them, unless I missed something lol.

Why is it, this never changes. Clothes change, cars change, techinolgy changes but people in highh school never change their way of including or excluding people in groups. If a person was standing out side by their self at a table or maybe sitting at the end, no one cares; doesn't that just prove that is the way with the world. As long as the persn is included, who cares about the one left behind. I wish this concept would change for the one left behind.

Don't you think this is just like the Catfish, just school age cliques who grew up?
